Shine On Award!

Not the award picture, but
I liked this quote from Pinterest
The lovely Deanna at The Book Lover's Attic nominated me for the Shine On Award! Yay! Thank you Deanna!

Now, I'm supposed to share 7 things about me, but just to shake things up a little - I'll throw in one fake factoid. See if you can guess which one it is. There may even be a little prize in it for you. ;)

1. I had an article of mine published in an international magazine when I was 14 years old.
2. I used to do tae kwon do.
3. I used to write incredibly cheesy boyband fanfiction. Had a decent following though!
4. I have ranidaphobia (fear of frogs & toads).
5. In my native country, I'm part of a royal family.
6. I've gone swimming with dolphins, had a ride on an elephant and petted a white tiger.
7. I have had 2 near death experiences, and my mother nearly miscarried twice.
8. One of my favourite books ever is "The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Blue Bear" by Walter Moers. It starts off with a little blue baby bear, drifting in half a walnut shell in the sea, and he gets rescued by mini pirates. How can you not want to keep reading???

And now, I nominate the following fabulous bloggers for The Shine On Award! Go show these beautiful ladies some love because they are amazing!

Laura @ The Tiniest Happily Ever After

Samantha @ Where The Love Was Found

Megan @ The Nerdy Girlie
